|Kwikchat - Asaguare|
Dancefloor beats with Japanese voices. You know I love to play with vocals, and this one embeds a postprocessed, fairly experimental speech track. Some might get nervous about this constant background bushwah, but I love it - a funny little murmuring creek.
Keywords: experimental; dancefloor; japanese; vocals
|Nada - Asaguare|
Dark experimental Latin Rather dark and experimental than a typical Latin tune. The title means 'nothing' and there's really nothing special except for that monotonously flowing, dominating bass drone. Quoting Silvia, the lyrics are "about a girl not changing her ideas, dreams or way of life after engaging in a relationship". Vocals, lyrics: SilviaO

|Glossica - Asaguare|

|Danse Macabre - Asaguare|
Experimental Essay - spoken poem: 'Danse Macabre' by Charles Baudelaire. Found a nice recording of this Baudelaire-poem, read by a female French. Of course I had to process her performance via vocoder to make her kind of chant chords and match the musical background track (Saronni's version of 'colors shift'). I also inserted a couple of guitar melodies to create a bit more atmosphere.

|Shoshaloza - Asaguare|
African Ethno, weird acappella mashup. This almost became a choral cluster - the first version had 8 voice layers. But to preserve at least a little bit of transparency, I removed some and ended with 4 layers plus percussion. May still sound confusing, anyway it's interesting to pick and trace individual voices. Vocal artists: Mtuba Thulisa, Mandyleigh Storm, Vieux Farka Touré, Emily

|Dingding Thing - Asaguare|
This was my Free-Tibet-contribution and a rather weird fusion of different audio elements and styles. The idea was born when I found an acapella sung by Sa Dingding during an interview. She was said to be the rising star in modern asian/pacific pop scene and might have been the first eastern artist being able to enter western world top charts. Well, guess this really could happen - she already got several music awards, and her sorta traditional Mongolian singing/intonation style is embedded in w...

|Earn A Quran - Asaguare|
Holy reading over Minimal Deep Tech-House. Although I'm atheist and never cared about political/religious correctness, I had to drop this one as pure provocation; just to satirize the recent hype of 'Burn a Quran' (which IMO is a silly idea anyway). From a musical point of view I love listening to any meditative recitings, and after a couple of western and eastern mixdowns it's just another one in a series of spiritual chanting tunes...
